Jason Phu – Sir John Sulman Prize (finalist)

Congratulations to Jason Phu on being selected as a finalist in the 2020 Sir John Sulman Prize at the Art Gallery of New South Wales.

Work: ‘I grew up in a very loving family, and now as an adult, I have a lot of wonderful friends’, 2020, acrylic and ceiling paint on linen, 130 x 180 cm

 

Artist statement: The orange hue of love is too much for my heart, its radioactive power seeps into my bloodstream and I metamorphosise into a giant mandarin-coloured bull. The excess power moves through my colon and comes out flowing like a bush doofer lost in the woods.

Family and friends are important, don’t ever forget that. Otherwise, I’ll break down your door with horns sharpened on the stone excalibur was taken from and impale you onto the wall like the trophy of a woolly mammoth resurrected from ancient permafrost  to be hunted again. All I mean is, tell them you love them

– Jason Phu, 2020
